    I thought this was good, but not 5 star worthy. I ended up decreasing the amount of milk because it was too thin, I increased the amount of cheese to 16oz. because of its thinness again, and I had to add alot of cayenne, some white pepper and additional salt in order to give it more flavor. Still not satisfied, I cooked up 4 slices of bacon and crumbled it in the soup. Better, but not perfect yet!

    A very good, easy-to-make soup. The garlic & chiles add a nice flavor. I used a small can of diced tomatoes, drained, but otherwise followed the recipe. I served with croissant sandwiches, and it made for a great cold-weather meal :) Thanks

    I cooked this for my husband and I one night after work. It was fantastic. A few days later he wanted it again, he cooked himself and made a few adjustments, he added a full pound of shreaded cheese and a few sliced bacon strips. The bacon added a bit more flavor. I'm definantly keeping this recipe!

RECIPE SUBMITTED BY

I am married and mother of 3 wonderful children. I have a 21 year old daughter and 19 year old twins, a boy and a girl. The picture above is of my granddaughter Destiny born April 5, 2007. She was a preemie and weighed 1 lb. 14 oz. at birth. She spent 73 days in NICU in the hospital She has came a long way and was 11 months and a little over 19 pounds when the picture was taken. She shows no problems at all now and is truly a miracle and I thank God for her. She is already Nana's little girl. I have a wonderful husband who is very honest with me about any dish I prepare. He is my best critic as I am sure most husbands tend to be. I love trying new recipes and love to cook. I love Taste of Home cookbooks. I like to do counted cross-stitch and recently I have rediscovered a lost love of mine; reading, especially mysteries. I can get lost in a good book for hours. Weather permitting my hubby and I like to ride on his Harley. Nothing like it! If I had a month off with no responsibilities I would travel. Love the beach!!! My dream is to retire and for my hubby and I to travel to all the places I would like to see. <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/Animation6.gif"> <img src="http://i80.photobucket.com/albums/j166/ZaarNicksMom/PACsticker-Adopted.jpg"> <a href="http://www.freekibble.com" TARGET="_blank"> <IMG BORDER="0" SRC="http://www.freekibble.com/images/share/freekibble-blue-194x67.gif" alt="FreeKibble.com"></a> Participation & Awards: These are some of the fun games and clubs here at Zaar. -
